In the arena of communications no other entity since Edison first invented the telephone has altered the way the world stays in touch more than the Internet. Internet communications have made global communications near instant and inexpensive. Incorporating both old and new technology is VoIP. Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP)uses the Internet’s infrastructure to allow traditional phone calling. The result is inexpensive phone service that truly forgoes the notion of “long distance” fees. Not only available for home use – businesses, organizations and enterprises benefit from switching over to this amalgam of telephone/Internet communications.
VoIP: The Wave of The Future
According to a custom study conducted through AT&T (with independent researchers), upwards of 55-percent of enterprises in North America have made the switch from traditional landline style phone banks to VoIP communication systems. The same study reports that as of 2012, an additional 38-percent of businesses plan to make the jump over from the traditional phone systems for VoIP.
VoIP: Benefits and Advantages
There are two big draws for using VoIP in any enterprise or business situation: service quality and cost. VoIP services do not apply the familiar long-distance fees associated with global calls or cross-continent communications. Obviously, this brings the fees and costs down to a minimum, which is the second and most obvious benefit; VoIP systems are cost effective and cheaper than traditional phone systems. Any enterprise with a central phone bank or operator can save costs in both the phone calling/service as well as labor costs. A traditional phone coordinator is not needed as the VoIP protocols are designed to make the complex simple.
Should Your Enterprise Make the Switch to VoIP?
With the majority of North American based enterprises switching to, or currently using, VoIP services it becomes obvious that any new or existing enterprise that has not made the jump must do so to stay competitive in the business arena. By switching to VoIP, the enterprise and business saves money, helping the bottom line. The VoIP service helps manage labor costs and provides a service that is far superior to traditional landline style phone banks. Make the switch today to stay current, relevant and in the black.
